Union concerned about control-centre relocation

The RMT union's complaints relate to the transfer of Piccadilly Line control-room services to a new centre in Hammersmith.

Transport for London plans to replace a number of separate control centres with a single one from 2017.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union says the move will cause job losses - and that there are also issues with rates of pay and the lack of "any meaningful offer for Service Control staff for the Olympic period."


Tube Strike

Tube workers have voted to go on strike in a row over jobs and conditions of service. The Rail, Maritime and Transport union said almost 100 of its members based at a control centre had overwhelmingly backed a campaign of industrial action.
